Globeville (Denver), Denver Co., Colorado

Names: 
Globeville (Denver), Denver Co., Colorado
History: 

Sallet reports that as early as 1885, Volga Germans were settling in the Globeville neighborhood of Denver, coming mostly from other Volga German settlements in the United States. By 1930 Globleville had an established settlement with well over 500 Protestant Volga German families from Norka, Beideck, Dobrinka, Dönhof and Frank along with 200 Roman Catholic Volga Germans mostly from the colony of Göbel.

In the early years, Globeville was an independently incorporated town. It was eventually incorporated into the city of Denver. The Globeville neighborhood northwest of downtown Denver was bisected and re-bisected in the late 1940s and early 1950s by the construction of I-25 and I-70 which intersected in the heart of the neighborhood.
